A Glam Wedding at The Oviatt Penthouse in Los Angeles, California
Cory and Randy met during spin class at Gold's Gym. "Cory was teaching spinning and I was a participant. Cory's mom, visiting from out of town attended a class and struck up a conversation with me," says Randy. "After getting the low-down from his mom, Cory soon asked me out to drinks at Cat and the Fiddle in Hollywood. That was 12 years ago!" The two found inspiration in the music video for Florence and the Machine's song "Spectrum." "Both of us love Florence and the art deco feel of the video. We used a color palette of black, soft champagne gold and pops of burgundy," says Randy. The couple chose the Oviatt Penthouse in Los Angeles because it was classic (and it was already decorated in all-out champagne gold. "It's a 1930s art deco style venue -- so Old Hollywood. It was the perfect backdrop to our evening," he says. Cory and Randy's friend Melissa officiated their wedding as "Commissioner for the Day." "It was very empowering for a gay couple to hear her say 'and by the power vested in me by the state of California,'" Randy says. "It made all that marching for equality we did worth it!"
